Active-duty military members and their families in the Pensacola area are invited to dine at a special Thanksgiving event in downtown Pensacola courtesy of Columbia Southern University (CSU) and Seville Quarter.
The day before Thanksgiving, Nov. 21, 2018, 100 active-duty military members and their families can attend a complimentary Pensacola military appreciation Thanksgiving meal
on Government Street in front of Seville Quarter, 130 E. Government St., from 4-7 p.m. The street will be closed to thru traffic for the duration of the event.
The university, whose military student population is approximately 40 percent, is serving this meal to honor and thank local military men and women and their families.
“Holidays can be difficult for many in the military as they may not able to be with their families because of their duties,” said Vicki Barnes, CSU’s director of Community and Alumni Relations. “We teamed with Seville Quarter to offer this Thanksgiving dinner to them. We may not be family, but we care deeply and appreciate all they do for our country. We simply want them join us for some good Southern home cooking and comradery.”
Local military members who are interested in attending this free event must register online at ColumbiaSouthern.edu/Thanksgiving
. A military ID is required for entry and seats are limited to 100 guests, including family members.
